Impressive garden jobs after 17 miles Ric, impressive! Looks like a quiet bh weekend out there.
Went to the Aylesbury park run for crowd control so the missus could run, then a juniors & seniors afternoon at MK track with LBAC. did a couple if 400's, 4x 200 and 8 x 100. Bit of swimming Sunday lunchtime too, which was nice.
So up stupidly early for the train to London this morning for the BUPA 10k tried to hit the first half quite hard and did feel a bit tired around 3k, but the time was still about 16 mins 5k. It's a new course and a bit better than last years and so went through 5k on 16.06. Hmmm, bit faster than I aimed for, but I thought I would try and go for it. Got a bit excited at 8k as I think I was on 26 mins! Sadly the early pace told and I ended up with 32.36, which is a PB by 2 secs. So, yep well pleased, teeny bit frustrated with the last 2k. Reckon that's lack of mileage?
Amazing stats arent they Phil - reminders of what sort of times the 'greats' used to do. Is that the Martin Yelling podcast? Saw him ,lizzie, and the rest of the Bedford gang at the weekend for Alec Stanton's 80th birthday party, great to see Paula there too, nice to meet her at last!!
Nice tri Andrew, sounds 'bracing!' Dachs - I'll have a look at the ridiculous schedule for the summer regards the 3k.
8 x 800 last night on the grass. Warm and breezy, but grass had been cut! started on 2.32,29,29,26,25,27,24,24. Did a 2 lap warm down with no drink so had a wobbly walk up to the bar after for an emergency bitter shandy & crisps. Serious athlete eh Had dodgy guts on Weds, so that probably didn't help..
